Me a year ago
A very unflattering picture of me was put on a blog lately and it made me have to face a lot of truths. Yesterday I was shocked, I cried, I kept looking at that awful fat woman that was me in the picture. Then I looked back at my pictures. I'm either holding Rascal in front of me, hiding behind some flowers or have edited it to just show my shoulders up. I've looked at those "nice"pictures until I began to believe that's what I look like. We don't have a full length mirror and I seldom look at myself in store mirrors. I was happy with my image. Until I saw this picture - YUK!
Now I have to face the truth. That IS the way I look. Someone thoughtlessly chose to put a bad picture of me on the internet-that's their bad choice and I doubt if it bothers anyone but me. How I deal with my real self is what matters. I don't think I'm vain but maybe I am. I know God loves me the way I am and I know He wouldn't want me to hate my body because it is a creation of His. I could take better care of myself, maybe that's the good that came out of this thing. Diane
